Cult of the Possessed

From Warhammer - The Old World - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Cult of the Possessed are or were a Chaos Cult of Tzeentch in Mordheim.[1a]

They are crazed fanatics who worship an Unspeakable Beast known as the Shadowlord that lurks in the darkness of the Pit at the heart of the ruined city, believing that it is in fact an emissary of Tzeetnch. [1a] They collect wrydstone for it and bring it to their deity, keeping only a few shards to create more possessed. [2]

Appearance

They carry shields with the symbol of the Dark Moon on their robes or on their shields. [1a]

Warband Structure

  • Each warband is led by a Magister who has been granted magical powers by Tzeentch and are utterly dedicated to bringing Chaos to the world. [1b]
  • They may have Possessed who have given their bodies to Daemons creating a nightmare melding of magic, flesh and metal. [1b]
  • Acolytes are regarded as Holy and are gifted with insane strength from previous Daemonic possession. [1b]
  • Initiates are crazed but still human followers who are eager to descend into damnation. [1b]
  • Beastmen: They may recruit the half-beast half-man creatures to aid them. [2]

Daemons may also be summoned to assist the Cult, a dangerous process. [1b]
